Taylor, make sure to follow your doctor's instructions to the letter, this will minimize any risk of infection. If you're nervous (I know I was some six weeks ago), ask the Dr. for Lorazepam or Xanax. One tablet an hour before the procedure will help you relax, I'm glad I did it and normally I'm not a 'pill' person.
The procedure itself is uneventful, the probe in the rectum is uncomfortable, but that's about it.
Try not to anticipate the result of the biopsy. Nothing you do now will change the outcome. You are young, with a relaitively low PSA, sos most likely you will have plenty of time to research your options if you're diagnosed with a malignant neoplasm of the prostate.
Best of luck to you and your family, I know these are testing times for everybody.
